The Wooden Fish (Psalms 111:4)


I have a wooden fish, fashioned and painted by my son. I proudly display this fish on my desk, next to my computer, for myself and all to see. I still remember the joy he had on his face when he handed it to me as a gift. During trying days, a simple glance at this fish is enough to bring a smile to my face as I recall his happy face. I see my son’s love in what he has created for me.

He has made His wonderful works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
Psalms 111:4

God created the world to declare His glory. When we behold His creation and ponder the intricacies and beauty of His world, it should direct our thoughts to the Creator. It should evoke within us a great longing and humility; God loves us so much that He created us in order to share in His love.

I may not understand all the reasons why God has placed me in this world. But I do know that He knows the perfect way to reach my heart. And for that alone, He is worth of my praise!

Love and honor the Lord; seek His will in your life.
